Who were AJS?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - New Bikes -

One of the old­est names in Bri­tish mo­tor­cy­cling, build­ing its first bike in 1909. They were renowned for good sin­gle and V-twins, and sin­gle-cylin­der AJSS made a hat trick of TT wins in the early 1920s. Taken over by Match­less, it be­came part of As­so­ci­ated Mo­tor­cy­cles (AMC) and of­fered a range of bikes in the 1940s and 50s. Pro­duc­tion ended in 1966 when AMC col­lapsed, but the AJS name was re­born on the two-stroke Stormer, a mo­tocross bike built by Nor­ton Vil­liers un­til 1974. Pro­duc­tion was car­ried on by the late ‘Fluff’ Brown through the 70s and 80s, and AJS still of­fer Stormer spares to this day.
